Task 2 in project proposal

Reviewed initiatives: Scale of Action

Example: OGC

"OGC is a non-profit, international, voluntary consensus standards organization"

- Global organisation but it is working in very USA orientated manner


Task 2 in project proposal

Initiatives with data requirements

"We will have identified the practical needs and requirements of the different user groups of the environmental information at national to local levels."

- Interviews were put aside, and they were

absorbed into the project partners'

participation to the document preparation

- Instead, the data requirements of various

environmental initiatives was planned to

identify

- However, this is already reviewed in the

INSPIRE Work Programme


Task 2 in project proposal

Links between the initiatives


Critical evaluation

Critical evaluation

  • More focus on data sharing initiatives than on user needs

  • No true interviews were conducted, but other ways of communication were

  • Classification of initiatives included compromises

  • Less links to local/regional level

  • Comments?
